What if I didn’t question the path before me and accepted that it is blessed and that all I need to do is take each step in the presence of Love.
The question arose in my meditation. It shimmered in the morning light, sliding along the frozen surface of the river outside my window. And, like the waters immediately in front of me, my mind became still, accepting and reflecting both the darkness and the light, the depth and the shallowness of my thoughts.
What if I believed the path was blessed and I had to do nothing but take each step?
And the muse answered — There would be no misstep. Only beauty shimmering in darkness and light in its depths and shallows. There would be only the perfection of each step filled with Love.
It was a scary thought. To hold true that each step before me was blessed. For, if I truly believed each step before me was blessed, I would dance in the light of Love. I would sing loud. I would laugh and spin about. I would embrace fearlessness in each step. I would not fear falling, shining, being my all and my nothing. I would not fear.
I wrote in my journal:
The Path is the Way. Trusting in the Universe I find The Way to trust in the Path where each step unfolds as a blessing before me.
We seek to fill our lives with that which we think is missing. What if we chose instead to subtract? To take away the things that do not work rather than layer over them with more and more?
What if, instead of seeking love, we chose to believe Love is always present, flowing eternally within and all around us?
Breathing into all that is not present when I still my mind and body, I found myself remembering to sink back into that place where I know, deep within me, that all my seeking to know the way, to understand the path, is just a way to keep myself busy from being all that I am.
When I let go of seeking, I open my heart, my mind, my body and soul to being present.
And in my being present with all that is, I become, all that I am, connected to all that is present – Love.
May your day be filled with being all that you are when you stop trying to become all that you tell yourself you can be if you only had more of everything.
